Authentic Mexico

 

A Connected Retreat in Nature

More than swaying palm trees and white sandy beaches, Mexico is a getaway full of wild natural beauty where you can disconnect from the world and restore a greater sense of self. From gently swinging hammocks to yoga and meditation on the beach, time will stand still while you embrace the present moment. Take the time to explore what it means to live well while existing in harmony with nature. Throughout your stay, the vibrant communities of Mexico will invite you to experience authentic culture on a wellness journey unlike any other. 

Your experience in Mexico will be spent rediscovering yourself in environmentally-conscious destinations focused on making a positive impact. In Juluchuca, Playa Viva is completely sustainable, and the property includes a turtle sanctuary and permaculture farm. Olas Tulum is also solar-powered, and captures and recycles rainwater to maintain important native plants in the ecosystem. 

Connect with Mexico’s wild beauty on your wellness journey with Regenerative Resorts.
